A small movie with a big, big actor.

We've seen enough movies to know Joshua will stop being a jerk after he learns the true meaning of Christmas, but it's almost impossible to disparage such genuine warmth.

Looking for Palladin meanders around Antigua (Guatemala) at a leisurely gait and enjoys the presence of Ben Gazzara in its central role. That's about all there is to find, however.

Suffers from an unfunny, unmoving, stilted and often meandering screenplay which can't be saved by Ben Gazzara's engaging and charismatic performance.

Film Journal International

The unsubtle approach to a lead character--a crude, motormouth Hollywood talent agent--sinks this otherwise often watchable comedic drama about a show-biz fish out of water in quaintest Guatemala.

Looking for Palladin has a split personality. It starts as a comedy but morphs into an icky family melodrama. It should have stuck with the yuks.

A semicoherent, overacted mélange of travelogue, farce and suds

Apart from Gazzara's brilliant, effortless performance, everything is a little cartoonish in Looking for Palladin.

Requiring cuts, some sense of direction, and dialogue that doesn't either declare or dither, the film looks like it was fun to make.
